toyota boy any update on next run? stopped playing the fire as i dont want those buildingsgetting worse. please send me payment info

#802 57 days ago

I have a set I’m not using if anyone needs one.
I don’t want to sabotage or delay the next run so I’ll check with Toyotaboy to make sure it doesn’t cause problems for everyone on the list. If so, I can hold on to them until the next batch is all sold and gone.

Don't "not sell" your set for me. I have made plenty on these ramp supports for my time invested. Perfectly happy to run another set if I get the minimum to cover my cost even if I end up sitting on 3-4 sets. Your other option is to download my dxf files and find a waterjet, lasercut, or plasmajet vendor to make you some. Just know that most places want $50-$75 for setup which is why it's better for someone (not even necessarily me) to run a small batch to make it worth it.

Thanks!

Anyone have fire insert decals? Also, I am looking for the left and right shooter lane building/plastics.

#806 55 days ago

decals existed, just not in stock anywhere

https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/CA-51B

As far as buildings they are unobtanium. TNT amusements once claimed in a video someone is recreating them, but even if they manage that I would be curious about how they are going to paint them and make all the decals.

#807 54 days ago

I am really looking for these decals. Marco use to sell them but I guess doesn't have stock. If someone has some left over from a restoration, please let me know.

I'd highly suggest getting a scan and making your own water slide decals. The decals I received for my World Cup Soccer from Pinball Center were absolute garbage.

toyotaboy Take me off the waiting list. I grabbed the set from mIkea.

I haven't been paying attention, but I'm in

Quoted from toyotaboy:

Last check-in, there was only 4 people on the list:

I usually like to run 8-9 sets for cost efficiency.. I would probably kick it off if I got 6 committed because I could at least break even and anything beyond that would be spares.

I would be in for a set, just joined the club and won’t be playing the game at all until I can address this spot on both sides which are cracked and near complete failure. Patience right?

I restored my Fire! a couple years ago with LEDs, poly bands, toyotaboy’s brackets (awesome, btw) and an overall shop job. It’s always fun to play.

Has anyone added the OCD LED board to their controlled lights? I’ve done this to a number of other games, either my own or a customers, and am about to add that to my Fire. I plan to post a before/after video but was just curious if others had tried it specifically on a Fire and what your impressions were. I should know hopefully in a few days when it shows up but enjoy getting others impressions and opinions.

#812 11 days ago

Looks like I have 7 buyers for brackets?

robotron: 1 set
Shabazz18 - 1 set
@ Brybicki - 1 set
Shabazz18 - 1 set
Plungerboy - 1 set
cmack750 - 1 set
TheBeefSupreme - 1 set

If so I'll probably pull the trigger this week. If I have 3 sets leftover, they can fill in for buyers in the future.

New owner checking in! Just picked this one up yesterday. NVram will be my first mod as it's still using AA's! As for the sling shot plastics I'm guessing eBay is the best bet for them?

Congrats on the purchase! Classic playfields has the full plastic set, I just ordered mine a few days ago. You might also consider getting in on the next bracket run from Toyotaboy a few posts back, a must-have part IMO.
